  • @Roland The Z fc is a fashion camera, not a tool to shoot with vintage lenses. That would be the Z6 (no need for a Z6 II and it new autofocus and its dual card slots to shoot manual focus lenses,...

  • I don't think you gentlemen are following camera prices very carefully. Z6 cameras are available at highly affordable prices, either lightly used or in new bundles. Yes, the Z6 was a premium camera...

  • @41mm The picture quality from the Nikon 20MP APS-C sensor keeps up with your Sigma fp pretty well. Here's a sample: https://uncoy.com/images/2020/08/Kittsee-at-Apetlon-20200808-04-Z50.jpg

    Love...

  • The Z fc is not a bargain basement model, accept it. Tthe Z50, Z5 and now that the Z6 II is out, even the Z6 can be had for a relative song. I'll probably buy one with the Z 28mm f2.8 as I want the...

  • Even at APS-C, at 20 MP this sensor offers better image quality than a Nikon FE with anything but the best film money can buy perfectly processed and ideally digitised or printed. Count on $30/roll...

  • When shooting a Z50 for anything but sports I use the flip up screen most of the time and rarely run into those issues. The Z fc trades in the touch controls for a real display button and won't...

  • I have a Z50, Z6, D850, D780 and D5 at hand. The images from the Z50 20 MP sensor are astonishingly good. I'm surprised Nikon didn't put in the D6.

    The first half of this game was shot with a Z50...

  • The optical stabilisation in the Z DX 16-50mm lens is excellent. I use it for handheld video all the time. No worse than Z6 IBIS (better than Sony IBIS). The combination with Z50 is ultralight and...

  • Economically, I don't see any reason for Nikon to encourage third party manufacturers to poach many of their lens sales. Nikon can offer outstanding bodies to us at very low prices as Nikon make it...

  • I agree with you Ian, when shooting landscapes or portraits. But I also shoot sports. For sports shooting, the Canon/Nikon DSLR paradigm with a front wheel and a back wheel to control aperture and...

  • Canon analogue cameras were never nearly as cool or attractive as Nikon and Pentax efforts. No need to bring them back.

  • Personally I love 40mm as walk around. Canon issued a highly acclaimed EF 40mm f2.8 pancake lens about twelve years ago which was highly popular among professionals as well as amateurs. 28mm has a...

  • @apsc4ever I think we heard you the first time. The photos are great, a pity about your prudishness.

  • @Idaho_X Try DxO Photolab with Film Pack 5. The native profile is good but Nikon colours just sing with the Leica M or Leica M9 profile, depending on which model. D850 is better with Leica M...

  • At least they aren't heavily tattooed, grossly overweight, dull looking guys with beards. I'd prefer slinky brunettes in bikinis but for a pure lens test these guys will definitely do.

  • If you are using this lens in that much water regularly, I imagine that a very thin ring of tape on the lens mount would seal it quite well.

  • This set of images (unlike some here) was excellent, with detailed subjects, varied focal lengths, excellent colours. Looks better than most of the images attached to the Sony A1 review. Definitely...

  • For higher FPS, there's a camera called the Z6. And if you want two cards to go with that, there's a Z6 II. Wow, fellow Nikon users never cease to carp. Better than chest pounding Sony users I...

  • I prefer a 35mm or 40mm but can definitely live happily with a 28mm. Compact matters for walkaround everyday everywhere use. Previous modern greats include Canon EF 40mm f2.8 pancake and Sony Zeiss...

  • "I do have the 24-70 f4 ZS lens and it is excellent. Actually it is excellent+. You might consider it instead of the 28 and 40."

    True compact lenses have been the weak spot in the Z lineup (often...
